Heh No deals, no Amazon streaming for me.
The quality isn't that great and I have 5 Redbox locations within a couple miles.

Via their Twitter, Wallace and Gromit Complete Collection is $1.99 today. Not a huge deal, but basically four episodes/films for the price of one. I got it because short and witty seems like a good thing to have on digital.

None of those four are particularly special at that price.

I noticed Chronicle (2012) is $0.99/$1.99 SD/HD on my Roku just now. Queued it up on Amazon.com so I can watch it later.

I didn't go through the whole thread but this has installed on my PS3 now if I use it do I have to pay for it (like Netflix) or if there is something free I can just watch it.

Are you an Amazon Prime member? If so, there's a whole library of free streaming titles. If not, you won't find much free stuff.

There's usually a couple free TV episodes. Check the latest posts in this thread for updates:

I'm glad they finally added the HD movies to the website. The SD videos look decent, but I'll definitely pay $1 more for an HD version.

So you can PAY for them on the website, but you can't WATCH them in HD there, right?

I believe that to be correct... no HD from a PC/MAC... but it is great that you can now pay for the HD via the web-site.. and have 30 days before starting your 48 hour viewing period... prior to this you could only rent HD via your streaming device.. which starts the 48 hour viewing period right away... which can be a bummer with these sales... cause you may want to rent something to watch later..
